Fear of people touching or going near my eyes.

I'm not sure what brought about this phobia, but for as long as I can remember, I have always had a fear of people touching or going near my eyes. I am very sensitive about my eyes and can barely touch them myself. When my eyes are closed, I rub them like if I'm tired or something and that doesnt bother me. But when it comes to people touching my eyelid or trying to come near my eyes in some way, I completely freak out. It took my eye doctor half an hour to get eye drops in my eyes to silate my pupils. I was wondering if there was anyone else like me or if I'm the only one like this, but it would be comforting to know that I am not alone. I recently had something wrong with one of my eyes, the lid id droopy and my eye is painful to touch, and I am really scared to go to the doctor. It might be something medically important that I need to fix but I just can't bring myself to got to the doctor because I know he is going to have to be touching my eye. I know this sounds kind of silly but it is completly true and it is something I am trying to deal with on a daily basis. Thank you for reading this guys!!!
